UPCOMING WORKSHOPS:

Options for Lawyers Workgroup 

Options for Lawyers is a free, drop-in networking, education and support group for lawyers making job or career transitions and for lawyers wishing to examine their options both personally and professionally. The group meets the third Wednesday of each month from 12:15-1:30 pm at the LAPBC Vancouver Office (#415 – 1080 Mainland Street).

Details for the next Options Workgroup are as follows:

Topic:  “Holiday Blues”

Managing Grief, Loss, and Illness During the Festive Season

When:  Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Where:  LAPBC Vancouver office – #415-1080 Mainland St., Vancouver, BC
Time:  12:15-1:30 pm
Registration: Drop-in – No registration required
Cost: Free

The “Festive Season” is not “festive” for everyone. For some it can trigger depression and anxiety when bombarded with images of stereotypical exuberance.  Dealing with Grief, Loss and Illness can be most difficult at this time of year.  In this workshop we will process the healing journey through storytelling, freewritning, and journaling to build understanding of life after loss.

This workshop will be facilitated by Susan Burak, J.D. M.A., R.C.C.  Susan is an Associate Director and Counsellor for the Lawyers Assistance Program.  Susan practised law for 25 years, has a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology and has taught both locally and internationally.  Susan has helped many lawyers through difficult situations with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting issues,  time management and career transitions.
